The Karlsruhe Pilot Team organized, together with the EnergyForum Karlsruhe, an information booth at the regional annual conference ‘Energy4u: Connect Ideas2Business’ at November 9th 2017, hosted by the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences.
The regional, annually conference ‘Energy4u: Connect Ideas2Business’ brought together technology providers, technology users, research institutes and investors from the energy sector in Karlsruhe. The interactive concept of the event allowed participants to present products, services and innovative business ideas in short presentations and as exhibitors on the marketplace to an interested trade audience and investors.

Topics of the conference have been Energy Conversion, Energy Distribution, Energy Storage, and Energy Efficiency (conference program available here).
The conference has been organized by Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences, Steinbeis 2i GmbH and the Energy Forum of Karlsruhe Economic Development and builds on the success of the ‘Connect Ideas2Business’ and ‘Energy4u’ events in recent years.
